Dust & Dirt

Updated on February 22, 2016

Dust & Dirt

I clean and I tidy furiously
Sweat beads on my worried brow
Dust and dirt finds rest on my skin
I must get this clean, it must be now

Everything goes back to its home
A place and a spot for everything
The walls look vast and empty
So I harness my brush and paint tin

Paint is set, dust and clutter gone
I emptied our house of all the mess
Why is my heart still troubled
What is this pain deep inside my chest

I look over our now perfect home
Sparkling, oh so shiny and new
A sinking heart, I feel somethings missing
A stray tear, realising that somethings you

I thought that I really could fix us
I just had to clean out all the muck
The idle dust collecting on our hearts
The dirt in which we had been stuck

It was too late for both of us though
We lived in stale filth for far too long
I should, I could, I would have tried harder
Sometimes two rights end up all wrong

      He he, Luna. Chuckle, chuckle. I am an esoteric, aesthetic, ethereal poet. Read some of my work. Nearly 300 of them.

      I wish you a joyful 2016, with continued inner abundance, and much longing. Glory Be!
